About Let's Laugh

Our mission is to re-introduce the simple, effective and proven strategies that lead to meaniful, sustainable and long lasting happiness.

Why re-introduce?  Research shows that most of us already possess the skills we need to be resilient, creative, productive and happy, but more often than not we either overlook, or in some cases dismiss, the most effective, most rewarding and simplest of strategies.  Research also shows that if we understand a few simple truths about positive psychology, cognitve behaviour and the mind / body connection, we can all make raising our happiness levels a part of our every day.  

Our popular programs include:

Laughter Yoga Wellbeing, a unique combination of positive psychology, laughter yoga and fun based on clinically proven strategies to help you find your inner joy no matter what your day has in store for you.   

Laughter Yoga, gentle exercise, deep breathing, and loads of laughter.  Just like you've seen on TV, in a park or read about in the paper or a magazine. 

Stress Management, Stress is a natural part of life, it's what motivates us into action but to much and it has the opposite effect.  The stress manaement strategies program teaches simple skills for de-stressing when times are tough and building resilience in the longer term. 

Mindfulness and Sound Healing, simple, effective and easy to master mindfulness skills and the pure mindfull indulgence of the healing power found in the sounds and vibrations of Tibetan singing bowls an perfectly tuned chimes.

A little about Bron Roberts - aka, the laughter lady, happiness hacker and more recently the endorphinator!

Clients tell Bron that she's a very funny person.  While she claims to be a scientist and definately not a comedian her presentations are guaranteed to make her audiences laugh.

While we don't want to 'date' her, Bron's journey into well-being and happiness began in the mid 1970's.  She was running a poplular stress management program in the health sector when one of her clients complained that while the program might be clinically based, and was teaching them about stress, it was actually making them more stressed rather than less.   He asked "Can't you just tell us how to be happier?"  She immediatly set to work with a local psychologists to develop what the client had requested, a program based around happiness. 

Since that time she's become a mother, spent 12 years as the full-time carer for her mother as she journeyed through dementia, spent a decade as a community learning centre administrator, and worked in corporate and community event management as an event organiser.  In 2002 she trained as one of Australia's first certified Laughter Yoga Instructors and Instructor trainers and was awarded one of the first International Laughter Yoga Ambassadorships.  She's since completed a diploma in Positive Psychology, a 3 year degree in 'Humour as Therapy' through the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humour (AATH) - making her Australia's first and currently only Certified Humour Professional, has updated and renewed her Mindfulness and Meditation qualifications, trained in sound bath (aka sound healing) meditation, become a Laughter Yoga Well-being Master, and has completed Laughter Boss training.

In 2014 she was overjoyed to become a happy little vegemite (she loves that song) when she was awarded a Kraft Australia Toast of the Nation Award for her work sharing the power of laughter and humour. In 2016 she was awarded the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humour (www.AATH.org) Knox Family Peace Scholarship and that same year became a Gross National Happiness Ambassador with GNH Australia through the GNH Centre in Bhutan. In 2018 she was awarded a Deakin Community Award for her work in creating and maintaining one of Australia's longest running a largest community laughter clubs, and in 2019 was award the AATH Esther Hyatt Carers Award. In May 2020 she'll be presenting, at the annual AATH conference, this time being held in New Orleans.  This is the 3rd time she's been invited to speak at this international conference.

She's also the the laughter ‘expert’ of choice for print, radio and television providers and you may have heard her on the ABC breakfast, the Insiders program, ABC 774 (now ABC Melbourne), ABC local in Tasmania and central Queensland, SEA FM, NOVA, LION FM and Radio NZ, and 3RRR. 

She has appeared in print in the Australian, the Melbourne Age, the 'RACV Magazine', 'Vital Magazine', 'MindFood', 'Australian Women's Health', 'Diabitic Living', 'Shine' - the members magazine for HBA and MBF, 'Australian Natural Health', 'Slow Living' magazine and Coca-Cola Lifestyle on-line magazine.

Bron has also shared her laughter techniques on several lifestyle and health based reality shows, is the 'laughter provider of choice' for many media students and has appeared in 5 final final year media documentaries.  

She is also an award winning author with the book 'Creating Delight - Connecting Gratitude, Humor and Play for all Ages' - co-written with Kathy Laurenhue and Sharon Wall, (awarded the 2016 AATH annual book award), and is a contributing author to 'Using Humor to Maximise Living' - Mary Kay Morrison, and 'The Home Therapist' - A practical, self-help guide for everyday psychological problems' publised by Australian Academic Press.
